    Yes but I work on my orchids and other plant (which are outside) till well after dark so I'm not in the A/C very much. For instance right now at 12:52 AM its 80 with 80% humidity and at the peak of the day it got up to 105 with 55% humidity.

    i need to find a place that is 65-90 all year with a nice ocean breeze and a little humidity. then i'll be happy. and whatever orchids can handle it, are welcome to stay at my place.

    Max, which type of orchids are you growing there? I am always looking for something that will grow well outdoors in Houston. Whatever you are growing should grow well here also!

    Looks like I need to branch out. Are you growing in a green house or out in the open?
